Seaside Sisters on-board light ship LV21Exciting plans ahead, we’ve been invited to show our work on LV21 – a fantastic 40 metre steel-hulled lightship that is being transformed into a floating cultural facility, moored at Gillingham Pier in Kent.

Seaside Sisters will be getting ship shape for a nautical themed Christmas craft fair on-board in December, and will have an exhibition there in summer 2011.

We paid the ship a visit on a lovely sunny October day. Paivi and Gary the ship’s owners were taking advantage of the weather to get some exterior painting done. What they are achieving here is extremely inspiring and we can’t wait to work with them, and their amazing, unusual arts venue.

LV21 is very close to the fascinating Historic Dockyard at Chatham, which we also visited and loved. They currently have a temporary exhibition of Stanley Spencer’s superb paintings of Glasgow Dockyard.
